Bloomsburg Theatre Ensemble reveals plans

BLOOMSBURG — The acclaimed professional theatre group returns to the friendly confines of the Alvina Krause Theatre for its 2021-22 season.

After a year of a “forced intermission” caused by the COVID-19 virus, the downtown Bloomsburg theatre stage will again light up for the recently announced productions to be mounted by the Bloomsburg Theatre Ensemble.

After noting that the regional group ventured to a couple of outside venues recently, its’ Managing Director Jon White Spunner welcomes BTE patrons back inside the theatre, for the upcoming season’s attractions:


• The Girl Who Swallowed A Cactus (July 15-31) — Before kicking off its regular season attractions, BTE offers this family-friendly, innovative one person production free to youngsters at the Bloomsburg Town Park.


• Airness (Sept. 16 – Oct. 10 ) — BTE kicks off its long-delayed shuttered season with this “face melting rock comedy,” which was listed as one of last year’s shows before the pandemic hit.

• A Christmas Story (Nov. 26- Dec. 27) — A reprise of an early success finds Ralphie back, still looking for the Red Ryder BB Rifle that, as humorist Jean Shepherd claims, won’t “shoot your eye out!”

• The Mountaintop (Jan. 20 – Feb. 5) — This is billed as a “powerful, fictional account of Dr. Martin Luther King’s last night on earth.”

• The Witch (Mar. 31 – Apr. 30) – This unique offering is a “wicked retelling of the Witch of Edmonton”

• The Christians (May 26 – June 12) — Lucas Hnath penned this “unflinching look at faith in America — and its power to unite or divide.”

• The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe ( (July 14 -31) – BTE often closes its season with a family fare show .As the 2021-22 finale, this show is another reprise of the C. S. Lewis classic.

Both individual and season subscription tickets are currently on sale.
